Paris: Modernist La Défense & Nostalgic Seine Bridges
with Tom Peck and Noel Baldewijns
Friday 13 to Sunday 15 September. Hotel based, 2 nights. 8 places
Paris is a wonderfully photogenic city, with a long history of famous photographers, such as Eugene Atget, Robert Doisneau, and of course Henri Cartier Bresson, to name but a few. We will cover three areas of Paris in detail to give a varied and distinctive photographic flavour of the City. On Friday, we will make images of the beautiful bridges over the Seine: the Pont Neuf, the Pont des Arts and the Pont de Bir-Hakeim, close to the Eiffel Tower (which we shall of course visit too!). On Saturday, we will photograph the ultra modern Le Défense district: La Grande Arche and the city architecture. A great place for long exposure techniques to blur streaky skies behind glistening modern office buildings. On Sunday morning we will visit the Louvre and several other venues to juxtapose the modern and classical architecture so typical of Paris.
